    Only Publicly Recorded 1928 Boston $100 Replacement

    Fr. 2150-A* $100 1928 Federal Reserve Star Note. PMG Very Fine 30.
    When we sold this rare Boston $100 star in our 2018 FUN auction, we said that: "the 1928 Boston Star note is an extreme rarity, if not unique. Just 24,000 examples were printed, but the lack of survivors might indicate they did not all make it out of the Federal Reserve System. No serial numbers are recorded in the Schwartz-Lindquist tome, and this piece is the single example to have been graded by PMG and PCGS. It saw some use in circulation, but is wholly original and attractive for the grade, with a deep green overprint. The Track & Price census records three serial numbers with PMG grades. They are simply wrong as PMG has reported a lone note graded. The records can be disregarded as inaccurate." Over three years later, all statements still remain true. For the small size star specialist, this pleasing Boston 1928 $100 replacement note is still your only option.
